Re: Alien influences
Come on now, don't be too hard on them. At least it's not another cheeseball Panhead Duoglide look-a-like. I think they'd sell a few, the FZ1 in unrepentent Anime` style and Speedy Triple, Buell and other streetfigher-esque bikes sell pretty well up here as do Bandits and your own Z-Rex, 919, Ducati Monster and what-not.
Beside, didn't our own Great Mutilated Prophylactic spout off about the return of the V-4? How can Yamaha,....er...Star go wrong? just have their Tough-guy models shave their goatee's into soul-patches, spike their hair and adopt a soulfull look instead a "dangerous 1 %'r-gonna-kick-your-ass" look and they're good to go
